NEW YORK, NY - It’s 6:30 on a Thursday evening in “The Big Apple”, and deep within the bowels of the legendary Madison Square Garden, the air crackles with the electricity of anticipation. You see, this isn’t just any Thursday evening. On this night, as the cumulative weight of untold hours of blood, sweat and […]
NEW YORK, NY - After spending a full day with an early build of NBA Live 08, I have a good idea regarding which direction producer Brent Nielsen and his team are going the recently-flagging franchise. The good news? It’s the right one.

From The Department Of “About-****in’-Time!”: WiiWare.
Though there’s been an online marketplace available to the grandpas and soccer moms who have catapulted the Wii into the sales stratosphere, it’s been substantially different than competing offerings available on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

It’s been months, and my Guitar Hero II hunger has not yet been sated.

“Are you hooked on video games or Internet games to the extent that you feel it negatively affects your life? Do you spend hours each day online or in front of the game console? ABC News is looking for teens or adults who are unable to control their electronic gaming habits or […]
Last Friday, Shawn and I chatted about the recently released May NPD numbers. Looking at the 360’s dominance in next-generation sales, Shawn wondered why Microsoft wasn’t dropping the price in order to kill off the PS3 while it was struggling.
